A DAD — and Isle of Wight police inspector — who took to YouTube to teach his children how to change a toilet roll, has become an internet sensation.
Newport-based Insp Will Reid has notched up more than 2.6 million hits on the web for the video which explains to his two children, James and Beth, how to change the roll.
The tongue in cheek video is the 'first in a series’ of 'how-to’ videos for his children according to Will, who has made headlines around the globe.
He says: "This is a difficult one, James and Beth so pay attention. The first thing is to remove the empty roll like this, it just slips off."
He then demonstrates how to take off the empty toilet roll holder and puts on a fresh roll before declaring: "That’s all there is to it."
In a further joke, Will said he will instruct his children in 'advanced level’ toilet roll changing which will include putting the empty roll holder in the bin.
